Great, something else to worry about

We’re driving to church.

THWACK.

Me: What was that?

Lorso: Probably an acorn hitting the roof of our car.

Me: Or maybe one of the half empty water bottles rolling around in our back floorboards depressurized and popped or something.

Lorso: Yeah, maybe.

Silence

Lorso: Or maybe it was space trash!

Me: ?

Lorso: You know, something that was floating in space that was big enough to make it through the fiery entry of the atmosphere and not get entirely burned up. They say that a piece of space trash as small as a postage stamp, if it fell on your car, could completely shatter the windshield! Cool, huh?

Silence

Me: Or maybe it was an acorn.

I’m with you. I’m going with the acorn.

It’s entirely too easy for me to picture the look on his face and the tone in his voice. Im with the space trash idea.
